A nutrition specialist Certifiers works with clients to help them develop dietary plans that will assist them in meeting their nutritional needs. For instance, a nutrition specialist may work in a school cafeteria to plan meals that are well-balanced for the population being served. Alternatively, if a nutrition specialist works one-on-one with clients, he or she may create individualized plans for each person.

You asked which ones did others use...
I am ACE certified in two fields... Personal Trainer and Health Coach.
I am thrilled with my choice and WOULD do it all over again!

Just remember:
Each person needs to do their homework and find the one that best suits -their- circumstances. Take your time doing the research. And if you already have a fitness center in mind where you want to work, you may ask them for their top three choices of certifications as well. (Not all certifications are accepted at every gym...)

Good luck and keep posting! We'll be rooting for you!

What organizations out there certify fitness instructors? I know about ACE, but there seem to be several. Which ones (which training programs) did you all use, and which ones do you like? Is ACE the standard? Meaning, does it cover what the other programs also cover?

Enjoying every single moment I can with my husband and little boy!
